Ebert was my favorite reviewer. I could usually tell if I'd like a movie from his reviews, even if my verdict would be different than his.

As a family we watched Siskel & Ebert. It was so much fun. Only critics I fully trusted.

Roger Ebert 🙁 As a kid I used to love to watch him and Siskel and later Roeper give the thumps up/thumps down. RIP.

Roger Ebert has died. He defined modern film criticism. He leaves a huge gaping hole.

I'll confess I hated Roger Ebert's politics, but for many years now, I've loved his film reviews. I will miss them greatly.
